For ultimate camouflage, tray or aligner systems render a modern straightening method. Designed with sophisticated software and 3D digital models of your teeth, a series of clear plastic trays produce the straightening results. Medical-grade plastic free of wires, metal, springs, and often without rubber bands gently moves your teeth into place. Gradual pressure on specific teeth with each aligner means less discomfort and shortened treatment times, in many cases. Our dental staff will dispenses several sets of aligners at a time, allowing you to change to a new one at home every two weeks.
Removable trays can be set aside for short periods, allowing normal eating and cleaning. Enjoying an apple without the intrusion of brackets and wires works well for many patients. The smooth plastic surface offers a comfort level to the tongue and cheeks unequaled by other forms of straightening.
A system that can be taken out and set aside may be forgotten. Committing to consistent wear, at least 22 hours each day, helps ensure the success of your treatment. While clear aligners work extremely well for adults, a responsible teen can be a candidate too. Adults of every age have discovered the perks of straight teeth with aligners.
